Rock Climbing Campania Region
Rock climbing in the Campania region has became better developed over the past few years now you can find several bolted walls above the famous coast line of Amalfi and out on the Islands of Capri and Ischia. This region offers a great mixture of outdoor activity and cultural. Visit Herculina (better than Pompei) in the morning, then head for the beach during mid day with a nice picnic lunch and then wrap up the day with a few routes offer stunning views. This should entire any reluctant belay slave to tag along and for a fun vacation. Tourism in Campania has old traditions. Already a place of leisure in Roman times, Campania acquired an elite clientele, particularly foreigners attracted by the wonders of Nature, in the course of the last century. Capri, Ischia, Sorrento and Amalfi became the chosen destinations of visitors from many countries, however, there are hosts of equally beautiful sights and fine scenery in the inland areas.
Campania is a great off season climbing destination. You can enjoy the Amalfi coast, Capria, and Ischia islands, and visit all the local tourist sites during your non climbing days. This is not a summer spot to climb.
If you can get to one of the sites I have described: be sure and buy the local guidebook if it is being sold by someone who has bolted routes in the area. The routes I recommend and routes I have tried over the years, I cannot tell you how some of the routes are now since I do not climb at the same level.
